Sticking peas

When part of the country has warm sunny weather and daffodils in full flower, while other areas have quite heavy snow it is difficult to give specific instructions to everyone. We can only recommend those in colder parts of the country hang onto our weekly reports and follow the advice a few weeks later. We are finding, however, the twin skin polycarbonate greenhouse, with no form of artificial heating, is keeping temperatures up and advancing growth appreciably. Autumn sown garden peas are now growing so fast with this protection they are in need of support. School garden club members are providing this with twiggy elm branches salvaged from some hedge trimming.(above) Where schools have an area for wild life gardening, it is recommended they include some hazel bushes. Coppiced every three years they are an excellent source of bean poles and pea sticks, not to mention hazel nuts and branches of yellow spring catkins to cut for display in vases of water.
